1079Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe, 1852 copy in two volumes. Front covers loose and coming off on both volumes, but the books are intact and complete. Been in the owner's family since who knows when. Photos of the key pages with the first printing "tells" are shown as well as two of the engraved plates and title pages. Pencil markings in the front of both and a few toned and lightly stained pages are drawbacks. Found inside the book was a loose leaf of paper with the signature "Very Truly Yours, HB Stowe, Hartford July 22, 1875." Still a rare 1852 edition of an historic rare book in better than most often seen condition.Cat. Value: S.B. 1000.00
